Lowers energy and re-insulation costs!
RetroFoam’s R-value (R-value measures insulation effectiveness) reaches a remarkable R-4.6 per inch in winter and R-4.1 per inch in summer. This is the highest annual R-value of any re-insulation option on the market today.
RetroFoam provides homes with 2×4 studs R-values of R-16.0 and R-14.9 for winter and summer, respectively. R-values for homes with 2×6 studs reach R-23.7.
RetroFoam also eliminates drafts by sealing plulgs, switches, cracks, and anywhere else air can enter or leave your home. It archives 95% or greater coverage in wall cavities.
Increases your comfort in all weather
With energy costs always on the rise, RetroFoam will pay for itself by saving you money on your utility bills. Retro Foam keeps your home warmer or cooler long – no need to keep running the heater or A/C. Since it is not necessary to tear out walls or remove old insulation, RetroFoam costs less to install than any other re-insulation material.
Continues to save money over time
Unlike blow-in cellulose or fiberglass, RetroFoam will not settle over time, change shape, or breakdown. Your RetroFoam insulation stays in place and is not affected by moisture. If the foam gets damp, it dries out quickly and remains 100% effective. RetroFoam does not allow air to move through the insulation which robs R-values and reduces drafts. Unlike other spray-applied materials there is no thermal drift that degrades R-value over time. In fact, the R-value of RetroFoam increases at colder temperatures. The high R-values and insulation effectiveness achieve by RetroFoam continues year after year.
Does not disrupt your life when installed
RetroFoam installation is an easy process in most types of buildings, typically completed in less than a day. Our installers inject RetroFoam into the wall cavity, so there’s no need to tear out walls. Since RetroFoam is installed from the outside in most cases, you do not need to move furniture or clean up the inside of your home.
Decreases noise: a sound solution
Although RetroFoam is used primarily to save energy, our customers often comment about how quiet their homes become once RetroFoam is installed. RetroFoam reduces noise levels by 75%, a 45-50 db reduction on average. Apartment and condominium residents find RetroFoam a great solution for noisy walls.
